Below are images (all in one place) of our CRG-15 California compliant (or featureless) rifle grip and our SSA-15 ambi safety selector products. Please use the top menu to navigate our website. Thanks for your interest in Sparrow Dynamics and thank you for your support.
The best way to support the 2A is to keep and use your arms (legally and publicly) and introduce more people to the sport. It does not help to hide them in a safe or bury them. Also support 2A organizations like CRPA, Calguns Foundation, Firearms Policy Coalition, Gun Owners of California, etc., and vote. If no one bothered to make these kinds of products before us, we wouldn't have featureless today, or bullet buttons and that means we wouldn't have ANY AR's on the walls of gun stores, and we wouldn't have ten thousands upon thousands of new AR owners over the last 20 years since the last "AW" ban (and I'm one of those people).
Many of these images and more are available on our Instagram and Facebook pages. Please follow, like, and subscribe, for more up-to-date news on our products, CA laws, and in the shooting sports industry.

Per recent California law, centerfire AR-15 rifles with bullet buttons are now considered assault weapons and must be registered before June 30th, 2018. Converting your rifle to a “featureless” rifle will mean that you will NOT be required to register it as an assault weapon. A “featureless” rifle is a fully functional rifle without the generic characteristics (or features) that define an assault weapon (such as a pistol grip, flash suppressor, telescoping stock, etc.). A “featureless” centerfire AR-15 rifle CAN have a normal and fully functional magazine release. Our CRG-15 rifle grip does NOT meet the California definition of a pistol grip (see details below*) due to the “forced” placement of the web of the trigger hand; therefore, we have classified this product as a “Compliant Rifle Grip”. The CRG-15 grip is an important aspect in the building of a “featureless” rifle.
Why the CRG-15 Rifle Grip?
There are other options to eliminating the pistol grip on your rifle to make it compliant or “featureless”, but many of them are not comfortable or functional such as kydex grip wraps or grip fins. Many also don’t look very good, or are downright ugly! Others are very expensive and difficult to change back if you want to go shooting in another state. In contrast, our CRG-15 rifle grip is very affordable and only requires one screw to install. We also designed it to be as comfortable and functional as possible, while keeping consistent with the modern look of the AR-15 platform (it matches other premium furniture already on your rifle). We believe our CRG-15 rifle grip is the highest quality, the best value, the best looking, and the most comfortable “non-pistol” grip available... we hope you agree!
We are not lawyers, and this is not legal advice. This and similar products have not been approved by the California Department of Justice. Even so, our attorneys, Michel & Associates P.C., prepared an analysis of the CRG-15 rifle grip and wrote an opinion stating that it is not a “pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon,” as that term is used in the definition of an “assault weapon” under California Penal Code section 30515(a)(1).
*Definition per State of California’s “Assault Weapons Identification Guide”, 3rd Edition, November 2001, page 80: “Pistol Grip, conspicuously protruding: A grip that allows for a pistol style grasp in which the web of the trigger hand (between the thumb and index finger) can be placed below the top of the exposed portion of the trigger while firing.”

This is our California Featureless Rifle Grip and our Ambi Safety Selector. The grip helps you comply with CA law, the safety just makes it better.
Notice the ease of operation of our safety and the one-handed control over the rifle at times (and this is an 18" non-lightweight rifle). The safety is installed in the 60 degree throw option, with the right long lever down for safe in the 5:00 position and up for fire in the 3:00 position. Other safeties that we know of can not be installed this way. This is important because all featureless grips options hinder your ability to reach the safety on the other side of the rifle. We designed it to work awesome for featureless, but can also be installed like any other ambi safety.
How to pin or fix a Magpul telescoping stock using a paper clip on a California featureless rifle. Featuring our featureless rifle grip and ambi safety selector. Use a thick enough paper clip for this installation to be secure.
How to pin or fix a Magpul telescoping stock using a paper clip on a California featureless rifle. This method requires no drilling or modifications to your stock and/or buffer tube. It could, quite possibly, be the cheapest option out there so far. It also allows you to pin or fix your stock in whatever position works best for you. Because it is not a screw, there is no worry of it falling out or losing it due to vibration. It is easy to reverse it and that is also shown at the end of the video.
